Depends on when they are laid - the female{s} lay eggs over a period of 2-3 months.

I've seen both matings and chicks emerging from mounds not long after

Hi all,
Was doing some bush regen in a small patch of damp gully bush
vegetation behind Alexander Street in Roseville, Sydney and saw a male Brush Turkey tending a rather large mound in a neighbours backyard.
 I asked a neighbour how long it had been there for and they told me
it had been seen on and off for a few months and that there has been a
few more Brush Turkeys associating with it.
Hopefully some chicks will be produced from the mound. 
Does anyone know month chicks usually leave their mounds?
Also saw a female Satin bowerbird and a large water dragon.
